Three-time Grammy Award® nominated singer/songwriter Vanessa Carlton, will make her Broadway debut this summer as Carole King in the hit musical Beautiful – The Carole King Musical.
Carlton will begin performances Thursday, June 27 at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre (124 West 43rd Street) for a 10-week run in the Tony®, Olivier®, and Grammy Award-winning smash hit.
Carlton said, “It is a privilege to tell Carole’s story. She wasn’t just a great pianist and writer, she was on the frontier of women in power positions in the music industry. Her courage and sacrifice, not to mention fierce sense of self, paved the way for artists like myself to have a shot. Being a pianist, writer, and mother myself, I am thrilled to honor her and bring to life the story of a fellow woman balancing it all.”
